    He means the empty runners and what to do with them…….
    There was someone here that posted a picture of him building a stand out of the runners, this was a long time ago, can’t remember who or what.
    Or do what I do, throw them in the old recycling bin, or is that a dumb answer to a ………. (insert your opinion on the dotted line) question πŸ˜›

  • Some say he was born with nippers for fingers and that he is married not to a wife but a knife. All we know is, he is called the Todd

    They look really nice! One slight comment though, those aren’t Katana’s but Tachi’s πŸ˜‰

    That looks really really great!!!!!! Did you mix colors or did you find matching ones? Found myself that sometimes when mixing the colors via the manual, the can differ from what you see in the pictures, while other times they match perfectly. In the event you did use matching colors, what brand where they as they look very good! Looking forward…[Read more]

    Sure, anytime πŸ˜‰

    Myself (no trouble with power outages though) use an automotive compressor. It has a huge tank (in comparison with airbrush/hobby compressors), which once full lets me paint for 1 to 2 hours, depending on the pressure I’m working with. Maybe an idea, most have an air pressure regulator and even a water trap build in.
    Anyway,…[Read more]

    Those may not do. Furniture is mostly wood, leather, steel and/or fabric.
    There are acrylic, enamel and lacquer based primers. From all those, acrylic is the most weak. Some of these might also bring some trouble in application.
    Lacquer based is the strongest.
    You can always put a weak paint on top of a stronger type of paint. There are exceptions…[Read more]

    If the parts are primed, thinning agents won’t effect the plastic. Except for cellulose thinner. That stuff eats trough everything!
    Gundam Markers contain Isopropyl Alcohol (Rubbing Alcohol). The same as used for the solvent in Mr Hobby Aqueous and Tamiya Acrylic paints.
    PE and ABS won’t be effected when exposed to alcohol for a short amount of…[Read more]

    • Hmmm, good to know, thx! πŸ™‚

      Are primers/undercoats universal or do you need different types for different paints? I know I won’t get a lot of options here, so might just end up finding undercoats for furniture or something… Will that do? Q__Q

  • teetee580 posted a new activity comment 4 years, 8 months ago

    Well this might seem abundant, but next time place an order for the tings on backorder regardless. This is also stated on the FAQ on their site…..
    With those big pieces they might only order the amount of kits that they got an order from by costumers. In any case, if you place an order for a kit that is in backorder, you won’t have to pay…[Read more]

    • Yay, you’re here! (^__^)/

      I always wanted to paint the Neo Zeong. Been practicing and brushing up my painting skills as much as possible for the attempt too for months. However, a few days back I saw a contest post on youtube with a Gundam marker set as a prize; there was a disclaimer saying that Gundam markers may damage ABS plastic! That got…[Read more]

    Your best bet would be contacting the service department of HLJ. Just drop them an email and you’ll be helped before you know it!
    Regarding the backorder part, it all depends on Bandai, how long it takes them to make another batch. Sometimes HLJ might get some new stock from a distributor, but most of the time they have already spread their stock…[Read more]

    You can use all types of paint for your Gunpla. It’s a matter of what paints are available to you, how you gonna apply them and what are the conditions you’re going to work in.
    For example, indoor without any sort of ventilation? Then using water based acrylics for airbrushing if you have to consider other people as these smell the less and are…[Read more]

    In the left corner below the text you wrote, there is an icon looking like a camera. Just click on that to select files on your computer. You can upload as many pictures as you like. After that just click in the right corner “share”.
    Keep in mind though that the pictures can’t be any larger then 2 mB per file, or else they are too big and won’t…[Read more]

    You’re welcome, glad I could be of some help. Good luck with the project!

    Jeez, would have guessed someone else would share some info, maybe like the person whom got the information from me before….. Anyways…,
    This is rather simple. You only need a few things in order to do this.
    First a panel lining scriber or a small drill bit.
    With the panel lining scribing tool, just keep on scribing in the panel line until the…[Read more]

    I second the Red Frame, my first fully painted Gunpla.
    The details on the frame of the Strike are pretty much the same. They have great inner detail, like pistons and such.
    If you like that kind of stuff, the older kits are full with that. The MK II and the GP01 even have hatches that can be opened.
    The 00 Raiser and the Unicorn lack such things.…[Read more]

    If things are send or bought inside the EU, there is no tax to be payed as “taxes are already payed in an European country”.

    • Haha gesprochen, wie ein wahres Wunderkind. But since all the plastik has to be importet anyways, there would be a double shiping cost. From Japan to Germany and then from Germany to the Netherlands. And that would be the same extracost.

    • Haha, I take back what I said. Had a bill from FedEx in my postbox today.
      19% importtaxes and FedEx took also 12,5€ +19% taxes.

    P.S., I was lucky a few times, one time a seller on E-Bay noted a price of €20 for my PG, shipped from Korea.

    Yeah, but you guys don’t have to pay Merkel, we here in Holland need to pay the Royals, and since they have an expensive taste and a big family… Everything above €25 gets 21% tax on top of the purchase and chipping price!!!!
    In some countries, like Germany for example, hobby product and or toys are free from taxes, talk about one big Europe eh…. sigh
